    2x-5y = -1 2x = -1 + 5y x = \(\large{\frac{-1+5y}{2}}\)

    put this value in the second eqn : \[\large{x-3y=-3}\] \[\large{\frac{-1+5y}{2}-3y=-3}\]

    form the second equation we have x=3y -3 putting it in the first we have 2(3y-3)-5y=-1 or 6y -6-5y =-1 or y=6-1 or y=5 hence x=3(5) -3=12 x=12 and y=5

    \[\large{\frac{-1+5y-6y}{2}=-3}\] \[\large{-1-y=-6}\] \[\large{-1+6=y}\] \[\large{5=y}\]
